Pets are available for adoption through All Paws Rescue, an O'Fallon based volunteer group working to save homeless dogs and cats. All pets are kept in foster homes, where they receive the care they need to help prepare them for a permanent home.
All Paws is supported solely by private donations and fundraisers. If you're interested in adopting an animal, you can browse their website or attend one of their weekend adoption events at area PetSmart stores. Last year they adopted out close to 300 pets.
This week's featured pet:
Allie is a female Border Collie/Akita mix born in September 2011. She currently weighs 88 pounds. All Paws volunteers say she is intelligent, and has the typical Border Collie energy. Allie does well with other dogs and loves people. She is house-trained and crate-trained.
